I went to the meeting place (Cheetham Hill) on my own. I wondered if I would meet anybody I knew. When I arrived I immediately saw former work colleague and as we started off two people I knew both from the Labour Party and going on CND marches. As we neared the town centre I saw Richard Lease and Joanne Green on the pavement and told him he should be walking with us. He replied he was heading to the Town Hall to meet us. The heaven’s had opened and by the time we got into Albert Square I was soaked to the skin, I’m afraid I didn’t stay long listening to the speakers’ as I was so cold and wet. I set off to Victoria Station and got the train home.
